NEW LEAD IN VALENTINE'S DAY EXPLOSIONS
Police find bomb gang's motorcycle Bangkok Post (hat tip RV in Thailand)
Iranian bombing suspects may have been planning to use a motorcycle to attack their targets in Bangkok.
Police on Saturday found a motorcycle that had been left in Sukhumvit Soi 71 since Tuesday when three bomb blasts rocked the area. An owner of an electrical appliances repair shop alerted police after he noticed the Honda Wave had been parked in front of his shop for a long time.

Bomb disposal experts and forensic police rushed to the scene and checked the motorcycle.
The motorcycle was purchased from a shop in the Klong Tan area by one of the suspects, said Pol Gen Pansiri Prapawat, national deputy police chief. A police source said the motorcycle was bought for 26,400 baht by Masoud Sedaghatzadeh, 31, who was arrested in Kuala Lumpur on Wednesday after fleeing Thailand. Witnesses confirmed that the suspects used the motorcycle for travelling but police are investigating if they planned to use the motorcycle for a bomb attack.
Police found a sticker with the word "SEJEAL" under the motorcycle's seat.
(A passage in the Koran relates a miracle when birds from heaven dropped "sejeal stones" at an army on elephants from Yemen who were attempting to kill Muhammad, scaring the animals and saving the prophet's life. Palestinian guerrillas have referred to their rockets and mortars used to attack Israel as "sejeal stones".)
Police have sought arrest warrants for four people in relations to the blasts. They are suspected to be part of a team of Iranian nationals targeting Israeli diplomats in Thailand.
Two Iranians are in custody in Bangkok. Saeid Moradi, 28, was injured in one blast and is being treated at Chulalongkorn Hospital, while Mohammad Khazaei, 42, was detained at Suvarnabhumi airport.
The third suspect is Mr Sedaghatzadeh, while the fourth suspect is female, Leila Rohani, who has fled to Iran.
Police are seeking an arrest warrant for a fifth suspect who was seen on surveillance camera footage near a house just before an explosion ripped through it on Tuesday afternoon.[....]
